PDF Extraction

About The Client

Our client, gosponsorscout.com, is on a mission to build an extensive global
database of organizations sponsoring newsletters, podcasts, events, and more online. They plan to cater to sales teams and budding start-ups who possess the right audience for prospective sponsors.

The Challenge

Sponsorscout faced the challenge of automating web crawling to find
newsletters, podcasts, events, and other sponsored content from a diverse range of organizations. Turning thousands of newsletters, watching tons of videos, and keeping track of countless events would consume unimaginable man-hours and prove unsustainable. They sought an automated mechanism that could deliver exact results in minimal time, with reduced costs and efforts.

Process

  1. We initiated the content aggregation process using the Feedly API. This versatile API
    enabled the automatic extraction of a multitude of newsletters, podcasts, events, and
    digital content from various sources.
  2. With the content in hand, we introduced Google Vision API, a robust image analysis
    tool. It meticulously detected and interpreted elements within images and videos,
    enhancing our ability to identify sponsor mentions within visual content.
  3. Google OCR was employed to convert textual information from images and scanned
    documents into machine-readable text. This tool facilitated text-based analysis and the
    extraction of valuable information from visual content.
  4. Google Entity Recognition further enriched the extracted data. It intelligently
    recognized and categorized entities like names, dates, and locations within the text,
    enhancing the overall accuracy and structure of the information.
  5. To fortify the database, we integrated the Crunchbase API. This versatile API provided
    access to comprehensive information about companies, funding rounds, leadership
    teams, and more. It empowered us to incorporate accurate and up-to-date company data into the database.
  6. The n8n Workflow Automation platform allowed us to seamlessly connect and
    coordinate the various applications, services, and APIs involved in the workflow.
  7. The extracted and organized data found its home in Airtable, ensuring easy
    accessibility, storage, and collaboration on the amassed information.

Outcome

With the n8n and make.com automation, our client achieved a continuous and ever-growing list of sponsors from across the web. The data was stored in Airtable, making it universally applicable and allowing easy access and analysis
